    Rock's gonna be in the dark and SR even more so.

    Forget Rock and SR ...

    I am the winner this time!!!


    In our part of North Georgia, we will see a *total* solar eclipse.

    The eclipse will peak at 2:36:26 pm EDT, when the moon obscures 100% of the sun.
    Thanks for the link Retread. Now we know exactly what time to expect the darkness.

    Should be interesting!

    If I remember right, if you're not in the 'total' path the light attains a dim, purple-ish shading. Where I live, we'll get a 6/8ths block-out.

    Here's another site that you can take right down to your own back yard for all the info.

    I don't think I've ever seen a total
    eclipse before, should be cool. If we were
    in FL we would have missed it but we are in
    MO now and will get the 100%.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Make sure you protect your eyes while viewing.
    Eye protection a must for the coming total solar eclipse

    Poor Rock, he gets no respect. Remember he's the new leader of the pack, post count wise.

    At 1:17:42pm we'll be in the 100% category. Need to go get some of those glasses. One of the pizza places give out 2 free glasses if you buy a gluten free pizza or a deep dish pizza. Trouble is, don't like either of those. Guess we'll have to buy some. They're saying on local TV that a lot of those special viewing glasses are fake. Nothing like a bunch of scammers causing eye damage.
